Definitely harder than regular soap
Nice solid soap. Can be combined with other melt and pour. I combined with high lather shave soap to create a bar that is high lather but harder so it will last longer and not go soft and mushy. Worked brilliantly. Also takes mica powder well. Melted evenly without boiling or burning in microwave in 30sec to 1min bursts. I will buy again. In photo half had been used.
